Alexandra Elizabeth
Alexandra lives in Libertad. Her house is made from cane but she receives basic services. She is 32 years old and her business is selling 'maduros con queso' (sweet, ripe plantains with cheese), roasted corn on the cob and 'carne en palito' (thin, seasoned pieces of meat grilled on skewers). The business used to belong to her mom but, when she died, Alexandra took over so that she could continue providing a service to their customers. She really enjoys preparing food and she sells breakfasts, lunches, juices and colas. Her business makes her enough money to cover her expenses but she also helps herself by selling handicrafts.

Alexandra says that her biggest worry is illness, especially diabetes which is what killed her mom. Since her mom died she has taken care of her health, following a preventive diet. She has two children who are in school and who help her in her business. She is requesting this loan to buy products for preparing food. She would like to grow her business so that, in the not-too-distant future, she can improve her premises and her home.
